Keeping antibiotics safe for the future

Public Health England (PHE) have recently launched their annual Keep Antibiotics Working campaign once again in a bid to reduce the number of antibiotics prescribed. In Manchester we have pledged to continue our work around prescribing fewer antibiotics, so that they continue to work effectively for you and your family when you most need them.

As Dr Ranj mentions in the video clip above no amount of antibiotics can cure your cough or cold and your body can usually fight these infections on its own. So if you are feeling under the weather, don’t forget you can ask your local pharmacist for advice on your symptoms.
